@AstaMcCarthy I understand that TOR is used by state security services and relies on the 'noise' of common users to help hide their communications. So they need the public darknet users to hide the state ones. If true the state cannot afford to shut down the darknet...
Do you know if this is still true (or ever was??).
@pperrin I don't have details about that. I do know that USA government is sponsoring TOR: https://2019.www.torproject.org/about/sponsors.html.en
I also deem it likely that a lot of exit nodes are run by secrete services to gather intel.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
